    "Details about new SMB wormable bug leak in Microsoft Patch Tuesday snafu"

    - SMB vulnerability is currently not patched, but now everyone knows it's there.

    - Details about a new "wormable" vulnerability in the Microsoft Server Message Block (SMB) protocol have accidentally leaked online today during the preamble to Microsoft's regular Patch Tuesday update cycle.

    - No technical details have been published, but short summaries describing the bug have been posted on the websites of two cyber-security firms

    - it's unclear when it will be patched.

    - Fortinet only lists Windows 10 v1903, Windows10 v1909, Windows Server v1903, and Windows Server v1909 as impacted by the new CVE-2020-0796 bug.

    https://www.zdnet.com/article/detai...le-bug-leak-in-microsoft-patch-tuesday-snafu/

    For those who wonder, SMB is the protocol used for Windows file sharing over a network.

    I fix it for you:D

    Microsoft have now pushed out patch for SMBv3 wormable bug that leaked earlier this week.

    The vulnerability, dubbed SMBGhost or EternalDarkness, only impacts devices running Windows 10, version 1903 and 1909, and Windows Server Server Core installations, versions 1903 and 1909.

    Yeah, new or latest and greatest is always better:) @Mr. Fox +++

    Manual download of the patch can be found here... http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/windows-10-1903.827243/page-44#post-10996190

    "Microsoft and partners across 35 countries took coordinated legal and technical steps to disrupt one of the world’s most prolific botnets, called Necurs"
    "the result of eight years of tracking and planning"

    Good, but 8 years of known & unhindered activity ?? And the criminals seemingly not identified. Shows the real state of security of the internet.

    We should pool our resources to fund a black ops band of mercenaries and give them a seek and destroy global hit list. Dead hackers don't hack. They just lay there and do nothing.

    And Microsoft follow same paths as usual...

    Widespread reports of problems with the second March Win10 cumulative update, KB 4551762, the SMBv3 patch
    Posted on March 14th, 2020 at 08:38 Askwoody.com

    I was afraid this would happen. When Microsoft releases two security patches back-to-back, it’s rare that the second patch goes in without problems.

    I’m seeing lots of reports with problems with Thursday’s post-Patch-Tuesday cumulative update, KB 4551762.

    Günter Born kicked off the discussion on Borncity with Windows 10: KB4551762 causes errors 0x800f0988 and 0x800f0900.

    Mayank Parmar at Windows Latest has more complaint reports — and they’re extensive:

    I have a feeling this is what happens when the original authors / coders / programmers are no longer around to explain how a particular piece of software works. The new age, younger programmer a) doesn't understand, and b) not as skilled as those of us with a lot of gray hair and more than a handful of Jolt sodas / 24-hour coding sessions under our belts (experience goes a LOOONNGGG way).

    That is just a small portion of the program, its main purpose is to manage the SSD, test it, check drive's health, benchmark it, update firmware, and enable caching. :rolleyes:
